Zealous Litigation

Any lawsuits or litigation that may arise in conjunction with a trust, estate, or probate matter must be thoroughly addressed and resolved as efficiently as possible. We are skilled trial lawyers who do not back down from taking a matter to court. However, court is not always the best place to handle what may be an extremely emotional issue for a client. Our firm moves forward with negotiation or in-court arguments, based upon your specific goals and needs.

Detailed Administration

Whether we are working on behalf of a beneficiary, trustee, personal representative (or executor) or other fiduciary, our firm structures our representation to suit the end goal of the administration process. We are fluent in the language of the federal and state laws that govern how probate is handled and how estates are administered when there is a valid will or when there is no will. Our attorneys can guide you through the process, providing you with the information you need to make educated decisions about the matter at hand.

Comprehensive Planning

Even if your income has been modest throughout your working years, your family may benefit from provisions in Michigan and federal estate and tax laws. A vast majority of people fail to consider the value of their life insurance and retirement accounts when thinking about the value of their estates. Estate planning that takes all necessary documents and designations into account can be done to ensure the protection of your assets and legacy. We utilize wills, trusts, durable powers of attorney, health care powers of attorney, guardianships and conservatorships, tax planning, elder law planning and other estate planning tools as part of this process.
